Covers you didn't know were covers - Simon Sweetman

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:18 pm on 28 May 2019

The worlds of pop and rock are full of ear worms and hits that we firmly associate with one artist. 

But they're often not the original article. Simon Sweetman is in to walk us through the story of covers in 20th century music and play us some of his favourites. 

There's a playlist of what we're talking about available here
